A flotilla of boats from Chester will launch the start of the weekend and boats will have the opportunity to moor in the recently opened upper basin. The lively long weekend will include a fine folk programme combined with inspirational workshops, family and boat activities for all ages. There will be the opportunity to have “Behind the Scenes” explorations of the boat store in Rossfield Road where the vessels raised from the top basin are being stored and worked on. There will also be the usual tours of the Lime Shed and the wider site.
